What is Micro Skin Needling?
Micro skin needling (also known as “collagen induction therapy”, “micro needling” or just “skin needling”) has been used by dermatologists to treat facial issues for decades. It involves a professional therapist essentially using needles to poke holes in the surface of your skin. This works to stimulate the production of collagen within the skin when it perceives a ‘micro injury’ that needs fixing. This collagen can help fill in the fine lines on your face and plump the skin to give you a more youthful and even look.

Why Choose Micro Skin Needling
Micro skin needling is a great option for anyone wanting a minimally-invasive treatment that is proven to work on all types of skin. It stimulates and utilises the natural healing mechanisms of the body to create results that look completely natural. It’s also great for people who can’t afford much downtime following a procedure and there are fewer side effects reported.

About the Treatment
Micro skin needling is great example of what happens when scientists think out the box. To start with, an anaesthetic cream is applied to the face, possibly along with a layer of hyaluronic acid gel to help the dermaroller move smoothly along the skin. Then your therapist will roll the microneedling device across the skin to create tiny holes in the surface which promote collagen production.
